Black Hole

This black hole
in front of me
is like a well

I jump and swim!

Ich springe und schwimme!

Another E: The Empat

Standard

This was first posted in March 2013
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Empat is a Malay poetic form related to the Pantoum. It is used in popular song today.

il celo in una stanza

il celo in una stanza (Photo credit: .Bambo.)

It has four stanza with four lines each where the first line of the first stanza wanders through the others: It is the second line in the second stanza, the third line in the third and the fourth in the fourth stanza. The rhyme wanders with it as well: the first line in the first stanza rhymes with the third. The second line in the second rhymes with the fourth line. The third line in the third rhymes with the first again and the fourth line in the fourth stanza rhymes with the second building a rhyme scheme like this:

A. b. a. b.
c. A. c. a.

a. d. A. d.
e.
a. e. A.
(info taken from The Poets Garret)

In modern day it has changed and The Poets Garret says about it:

“Ideally the Empat should have the same rhyme scheme with every stanza (Abab,
bAba, etc) when singing folk type music; but because of English and (later)
American influences the rhyme moved to couplets alone (Aabb. aAcc,etc),(Abab,
cAcb, etc), (Abba, cAac, etc) and now in modern music there is no rhyme scheme
and only the Repeating Line remains (Axyz, dAfg etc). ”

This is another post from February 2013. Maybe it inspires you to try and write a decastich too :-):

Not enough C so there we are at D: Decastich 

There is not a lot of information about the Decastich. According to The Poets Garret it is a poem of 10 lines and you can do with it what you want. Rhyme or no rhyme, syllable pattern or no pattern….. you get the gist.

That one should be fun then :-)!

Here is my take:

Writers block

Those words don’t come easy anymore

My mind hard as a rock!

Being poetic became such a chore

Where’s that muse of mine?

I need this little something now

That creative sparkle

Can hardly take those words as a pow

They would not bloom.

Tomorrow maybe there’s more words to come

and a new one shines!

#221 of #365 A Prompt A Day For Bee ~ Bread & Poetry

Twitter may help.

My versing is very sluggish this week. I can’t get into it. Don’t know how or why. It just is like that. That’s how it is sometimes but I just get on with it. Not that my best poetry will be created this week (neither my best blog posts) but there will be others. And then I’ll write THE poem 🙂

Oh, for today I searched in Twitter for a poetry prompt and that’s what the bird came up with:

Bread and circusses/ Brot und Spiele

It’s a doughnut I know and no bread but well, you have to spoil yourself sometimes ;-)!
